Shinglehouse G.A.R. Convention

Today’s artifact is from my mother-in-law’s collection, showing a fair number of folks gathered together in the Shinglehouse area  for an area convention of the Civil War Union veteran’s group: The Grand Army of the Republic (GAR). No date is associated with the pic, but based on the ID in the pic of Harry Whittemore (DOB: 24 Oct 1888) my guess is that this was about 1900. That could be off, but is probably pretty close.

If you can identify others in this photo, let me know!
